The graphic below shows the team layout and who's partnered with who.
The second graphic concentrates on No's 5, 7, 8 and 11, and shows a simple passing manoeuvre:
5 passes to 8 and moves up to support. 8 passes to seven and moves to receive a return if necessary. 7 passes to 11 and moves to the defence line ready for a pass through. 11 returns to 8 and moves across the defence line staying onside and ready to break behind the defence as soon as 7 (at point 6) taps the ball behind the defenders.
What this requires more than anything is being able to read the runs and intentions of your team-mates. It would be good if you could talk about it among yourselves before the matches and make sure you understand what to expect from each other.
